Riad 72

It is a good thing that Riad 72 offers airport transfers because you would never find this hotel in a million years. Tucked away in a pedestrian street in the heart of the maze-like Medina, behind a huge wooden door, you wouldn't have a clue that this tiny hideaway lies within.

Riad 72 follows the traditional riad design with the reception area in open air courtyard with fountains and banana trees. The dining room and chill out lounge areas are off to the sides. The four guest rooms are upstairs and overlook the courtyard, each individually decorated with beautiful finds from the souks.

The hotel is situated in a great spot for exploring, and once you get your bearings, you don't have to worry about never being able to find it again. It is walking distance to the main square, Djemaa el Fna, which is fascinating by day but by night with its fortune tellers and snake charmers, it is almost magical. Plus you obviously have the medina right on your doorstep too if you fancy trying your hand at bartering for lanterns or leather goods, all handmade and still reasonably priced.

For hot days, there is a splash pool on the roof so you can cool off from the 300 days of sunshine that Marrakech is famous for. And in the evenings, you can watch the sunset over the rooftops from up there on the sofas.

Riad 72 also has its own little spa so you can indulge in the traditional Hammam massage, although this isn't for the faint hearted!

The hotel restaurant serves Moroccan cuisine whenever and wherever you wish. Order at breakfast time for lunch or by 2pm for dinner as all produce is bought fresh from the market.
